Dear Harvest Family,

A recent development has occurred that we, the Elder Board and the Church Leadership Team, wish to bring to your attention, our church family.  On April 12, a separation agreement between James MacDonald and Harvest Bible Chapel was signed. However, the agreement was contingent on our mortgage lender’s approval.

Today, we were encouraged to receive a letter from the mortgage lender stating they do not consent to the release of any assets including cash, physical property, and/or intellectual property. Because of this decision, the agreement is null and void.

We want to assure you that none of your tithes and offerings have gone to James since his termination, and he did not receive severance because his termination was “with cause”.  To be clear, none of Harvest Bible Chapel’s or Walk in the Word’s donations or assets have gone to James, and we will not be giving him anything in the future.

For the glory of our Lord,

The Elder Board and The Church Leadership Team
